After record-breaking performances from the Nissan Rogue stirred the American SUV/crossover pot in the first-quarter of 2017, the Honda CR-V stood head and shoulders above its rivals in April 2017 and now trails the Rogue by only 2079 sales heading into the final two-thirds of 2017.
CR-V sales jumped 13% to 32,671 units, its best-ever April result. The CR-V’s three top rivals – Toyota RAV4, aforementioned Rogue, Ford Escape – all posted noteworthy year-over-year gains, as well. Combined, the quartet was up by more than 11,000 sales compared with April 2016.
Despite a slowdown in the overall American auto industry, SUV/crossover sales remain healthy overall. Among the 20 most popular utility vehicles in April, only five failed to generate more sales in April 2017 than in April 2016.
Sales of the all-new Chevrolet Equinox, however, were flat.
